Tim has wanted to be a science teacher for most of his life. Every year in high school he wanted to teach that science; first earth then chem then physics. He graduated in 2000 from Rockland High School in Massachusetts and then studied physics and teaching at the University of Maine. He did his student teaching in Newton,Ma and then graduated with a MST in physics and moved to Hawai'i to teach for two years in an undeserved area of Oahu called Wai'anae. After moving back to the mainland, Tim got a job teaching physics at the Boston Public Schools and has taught there for the last 9 years. He has been a New Teacher Developer, and professional development facilitator as well as a member of his school's ILT. He is proud to be joining this cohort in his first year as a Sci-Ed fellow.
